Programmed Learning in Integrated Industrial Training.
Shirley-Smith, Katalin
Beginning with the system of industrial training boards and other background considerations, this British work gives detailed, practical guidance on applying programed instruction (PI) principles in various job functions and industries. Potential advantages of PI in industrial training are summarized, along with uses of audiovisual aids and teaching machines, outside sources of programs, integration of PI with other training approaches, and the costs of PI. The role of PI in universal training areas (aptitude testing, orientation, safety, hygiene) is indicated. More detailed guidelines follow for apprentice training, machine operator training, office occupations, salesmanship, management and supervisory training, government employees, the armed forces, computer training, accounting, banking, and insurance. Ideas are offered on how small companies can benefit from modern training techniques through group training schemes and other arrangements. Finally, expected developments in educational technology are predicted. Included are an index, photos, 15 charts, and references. (LY)
